Intergenerational Event

Date: 14 October 2021

This week members of our local community were treated to a day of pampering courtesy of John Ruskin College Hair & Beauty students! Students on our Hair & Media Make-Up Level 3 and Body & Spa Therapy Level 3 courses were excited to practice the skills they had learnt, whilst giving back to the Croydon community.

The Intergenerational Event is run in partnership with the Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundation and the Croydon BME Forum, coinciding with our celebration of Black History Month.

Our guests received a warm welcome from Councillor and Cabinet Member Manju Shahul-Hameed who noted; “This event demonstrates the coming together of the older and younger generations and is a great opportunity to build on the strengths that different generations have to offer to one another.”

Held in the College’s modern training salon, The Atrium, our guests were treated to a range of mini pamper treatments including massages, manicures, blow drys and make-up sessions, followed by lunch in the College café. 


The event also featured a lively Q&A session where our students and guests were able to talk with one another to learn more about their backgrounds and life stories and share advice that could be passed on. 

One of our Hair & Beauty students commented: 

“I’ve really enjoyed meeting and having a chat with the guests who came down today. It’s been so nice for us students to give back to the local community.”

One of our happy models said: 
“It’s been a wonderful experience speaking with the students today. They gave us lovely beauty treatments and made us feel very special indeed!” 

The day was a great opportunity for our students to showcase their skills learned on their Hair & Beauty courses. Click to find out more about our wide range of Full-time and Part-time Hair & Beauty courses on offer.
